Environmental Regulations Webinar Is Thursday at 3 p.m. EDT

Thu May 11, 2017

145072686053695.jpgFairfax, Virginia - Join Hannah Crawford Thursday, May 11 at 3 p.m. EDT for a free webinar to learn about basic environmental regulations pertaining to your responsibilities for air, land and water.

Within many organizations, environmental compliance often becomes the responsibility of the safety manager, who may or may not know the regulations. The Environmental Protection Agency is the federal agency that regulates environmental compliance across the country, and many states have adopted state agency plans as well.

Crawford is a Regulatory Analyst, joining KPA nine years ago straight from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. She has 10 years of experience working for the state of Florida in various capacities and has extensive experience as a hazardous waste inspector.

In this webinar she will cover the environmental basics including:

• Waste Generation
• Water discharge
• Air permitting
• Stormwater runoff
• SPCCs
